9/10, I'm supporting heavy tanks. And unlike 'normal' arty which is hiding at the back... well it has damn few spots to actually take cover. And enemy scouts get through and wreck havoc.
A Bishop can pull just on the outskirts or even get in a city and pump damage on heavy tanks. And nothing spells success better then taking guns out of the game. Your small but quick
loading gun takes out those few remaining hit-points easily. Scouts don't normally waltz past heavy tanks. You're safer up on a strong flank. Easy to pump out 1000-2000 dmg doing this.
I've seen 3k broken by another teammate doing basicly the same thing. One thing I've noticed however... when you have to hit enemy close up... aim LOW. If they're up close and in the
crosshairs, 9/10 my shells fly high. Perhaps it's the viewport vs gun height mount? Anyways, I've never had one shell go too low when defending myself.
Many will preach the FV304. Far as I'm concerned, the speed advantage is lost by having the same gun only one tier higher. And the Bishop can surprise many tanks and bounce... it's a
valentine chassis. The Bishop has the HIGHEST win-rate of any non-premium arty. And it's 2nd overall.
